The latest on the moment the film is the repeated participant of the competition program of Cannes, the Korean Director Hong San-soo ("the day", "In another country") on this time a participant of the festival , but the critics loved it. Personal impression he has caused an extremely strange, as if I ate a biscuit, not drinking water, if this film language — typical Director, the with the rest of his work not yet arises the ardent desire to get acquainted. In the center of the story — a middle-aged French teacher Claire (Isabelle Huppert), which is slightly annoying meets the Koreans who came to the festival to present his film, especially its interested in one girl (the star of "Maids" Kim Min-hee), fired for flirting with the Director. The timing of the film is very short — just an hour nine minutes, but during playback it seems that it is not will end never. The main praise of the theses in the "Camera Claire" was that the movie, like, very carefully imitates voyeurism for a stranger with a piece of life, without hypocrisy, affectedness and other things, the most representing the new future of cinema, aspiring to realism.

To be honest, these "movies of the future" is a big concern, because realism is realism, but such an approach completely evaporates the very magic of cinema. With same result can apply with the camera somewhere in store, all other place to shoot people for some mundane occupation, to give the footage over ultrarealism and rush to look in to it deeper meaning. Yes, the characters behave naturally, but their reactions, as and the relationship, not addictive, does not care and not cause any interest — dull the initial dialogue, in which the heroine Kim Min-hee tries in vain to get from her boss the reasons for the dismissal and decryption of the concept of "dishonesty" in your address is a typical example. For with the exception of smiling and curious heroine Huppert all others go with Pokerface, with same a view of the dig in its no one that long, boring, no strings, climaxes and resolutions. In short, everything in life, dry, ordinary, without cinematographic rules and other conventions that do not even carrying game with the frame. So what if there is a spectator who believes that this approach to create movie innovative and fresh, then the"Camera Claire's" — definitely Your choice.

Can You picture?

Hong San-soo-respected Director hails from South Korea he has a number of nominations the Golden palm from the Cannes film festival. Of course, best known for his film "In another country" about three stories with three Andami. Personally, I like the film with him I a and opened this Director.

Now before our attention another, unusual drama from Hong San-soo under the name "La camera de Claire". This film was created with participation in South Korea, and France attracts to itself attention in the first place because of Isabelle Huppert, playing again at this Director. (Huppert already worked with him in the film "Another country". In  the"Camera Claire" French, a popular actress plays together with another famous actress, but not France and South Korea — talented dramatic actress, Kim Min-hee.

In this story, we see one French girl at the name Claire takes on my camera stranger, who was fired with work because of the affair with the boss. Claire is an unexpected guest in a love triangle this stranger, her boss boss. Before us is a monologue intricacies of feelings and complicated story of the photo camera Claire...

Director maximum in this film wanted to show the true, real history as if we look no movies, and real, someone's story of how if we looked at the window of someone's life. In all the beauty of this unusual, conversational film. Movie net and living with a small number of assembling gluing, only a few scenes, important connected with each other. Perhaps that movie the future. Because he and seeks to the truth, show all really like if the viewer needs to be in something real. This movie is like this.

Thanks to the good directing, and its kinda the interpretation and the idea of the film is artful and inspiring movie, opening a new era. Hon San-su this is the pioneer, and his paintings are special.

Certainly, in the Huppert here was nice to look at, and she was the center of the universe this picture. Isabel about says that she feels more than actress it is. Huppert gives unknown movies, life, magic, atmosphere and their unsurpassed acting. It as if hypnotizing the audience, and her impossible to put down.

Kim Min-hee, I opened to yourself the drama "a Night at the sea one." She's a strong actress, and in this new picture again purely played. A history where was her she this tape on really old as : it and philosophical, and instructive.

This is a true movie about life itself, the present moment, of love, work, loneliness, freedom. With this little-known picture opens a new era of great movie. The film deserves attention, but a narrative to the fan, not for everyone.

"Camera Claire" — independent drama film Hong San su 2017. The result, true, true movie, in which she lives and there is nothing false or one touch affectedness. Thank you for attention in all just good, strong films.
